Manuel has been practicing Yoga since 1999 but it was just in 2003 that he discovered Ashtanga Yoga and devoted his life to the practice. After a year of practice in 2004 he made his first trip to Mysore, India to practice at the Sri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) with the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath Jois. Since then for the past 16 years and counting he returns every year to the KPJAYI (now known as SYC), where he is now learning Advanced A Series under the guidance of his teacher Paramaguru Sharath Jois.
For almost 2 decades his teaching career has included creating, supporting and growing Mysore Mysore programs around the globe. It has been and continues to be his life’s work to bring the Ashtanga Yoga practice to students that walk into his classroom. He believes that the practice is adaptable to every lifestyle and body type. It is a strong message within his teachings to learn the art of intelligent movement with a healthy attitude as a practitioner. Manuel’s years of experience gives him the ability to teach the complete beginner to athletes and pregnant students. When not travelling to teach workshops internationally he can be found teaching daily at Mysore Room.
Manuel was authorised to teach the Ashtanga Yoga method in his pure form by his teacher Paramaguru Sharath Jois in 2009.
